RailRiders Playlist: Clint Frazier has special connection with Florida Georgia Line
If you walk into any baseball clubhouse or locker room at any level — professional, college or even high school — there’s a good chance music will be blasting out of someone’s speakers. It could be country, rock, hip-hop and rap, R&B, reggae or Latin music.
The same can be said as teams go through their pre-game workouts or players walk up to the plate or out of the bullpen.
Each week we’ll take a look at how music influences each player’s game.
Who plays the best music? Well, we haven’t had anybody play (music) other than Mason Williams yet. From my understanding it’s been him. I don’t really know who’s on the music, but I think he’s kind of taken the lead on that one. He has the generic good songs that are out right now. I like some throwbacks every now and then, or something like The Chainsmokers that came out. Something different.
What’s your pregame playlist? I’ve been fluctuating between The Chainsmokers and Florida Georgia Line the past few days. Just something that calms me down. I don’t get nervous. I don’t get anxious. Just something that’s a smooth tempo song is what I like to listen to.
What’s your walk-up song? It’s “Angel” by Florida Georgia Line. I went to the same school as the lead singer of Florida Georgia Line, Tyler Hubbard. Lived in his mom’s neighborhood. But what went into the song was, I try to incorporate my walk-up song into something that will calm me down. The song “Angel” makes me think of my girlfriend. It’s just a song that makes me think of her, calms me down and kind of brings me back into the moment.
Who has the oddest walk-up song? Eddy (Rodriguez). He had “Fireman” by Lil Wayne the other day. That’s kind of creepy for me.
